For a number of reasons I have been trying to find a way to encrypt my backup tapes. I'm currently running Bacula for my backups and it's support for Drive based encryption is I have to call a script or something to set the key in the drive.

The part I'm trying to figure out is how can I set the encryption options on the tape drive in Debian Linux?
